Hi, I'm a quite tall operator(190cm), and I was asked to shot a very low mode with my Nexus, I got a 50cm height shot eventually, with the four stages expanded, but I would like to know whether is a more comfortable position for me to operate better at this heights...or a better configuration that I got...thanks

man I don't understand your question at all but with such a sled you should be able (positioning in a good way your weights) to have a close to the ground low mode shot. Explain better please.

Sorry, I have it clear in my mind, but very bad explained, sorry...I'll try again..I meant that I could do the shot but I would like to get the camera lower than I got, closer to the ground...I don't know if I made the right configuration, but the sled was well balanced, maybe it is because of my height..thanks

what Matteo is saying is that with a 4 stage post one should easily be able to set the camera on the ground while wearing it. Let us know more details like what camera it was and the sled you fly.

Perhaps you need to use a F bracket or D bracket to get the rig lower. The D bracket allows you to flip your gimbal handle upside down and buys you a few more inches (or centimeters) down.
